between unions and workers. >> union leaders lost a lot of power in michigan yesterday. while state bau americas were in the process of passing the right to work law union leaders and thousands of union workers protested outside of the capital building. it is a state that has been heavily influenced the uaw for decades but the cloud cries had no effect. >> it is official the governor of michigan is one greedy nerd and one weak geek. he when satisfied to giving thousands of jobs to china when he was on the board of gateway commuter. >> a small counter protest by the pro rights to work group americans for prosperity was targeted by some of the angrier

wealth. in the right to work states unemployment is 6.9 percent. >> it shows the right to work nonright to work states on unemployment. >> in the other states when they are nonright to work it's 8.7. so you can choose to have fewer workers who enjoy higher inflated unnatural if you like wages uncompetitive wages or have competitive wages and more people employed more people with the dignity of a job and less unemployment and more taxation and more activities. i think it's the right choice but i understand how it is a wrenching choice. >> diane macedo is looking at a closer look at the breakdown of the unemployment numbers. >> it is cold here in the northeast. >> a little quieter as far as
temperatures go. another morning you are waking up to temperatures in the teens 20 in chicago current temperatures 20 in kansas city. it's not the actual temperatures that are bad or feel good. it's when you factor into wind gusts and make it feel much colder and many you to the west are below zero. it feels like below zero when you head out the door you need to bundle up across the west. 27 in el paso. across the country we are seeing temperatures above what is typical for this time of year. over in rapidsy is it warming up to 47 degrees 52 in tan kansas city and 58 degrees in dallas. quiet day across the country we have areas of rain across portions of the southeast we

crowd krauter found himself in the middle of all of this. he was attacked by a union member there. take a look at this. >> he was standing near the con sefb tive group. they had a tent there. they were there to support the right to work law. the at any time also targeted by angry union members. it was torn down by the protestors. he describes the incident to sean hannity. >> i went out there and leftists are saying i deserve the beating i got completely physically unprovoked. the reason for that i provoked it by asking them why they were against right to work. by asking them what about someone in michigan that might want to work for a company and might want to join a union. i asked a few people why are you
for rigagainst right to work. they began tearing the tent down tearing it apart while people were doing this stop doing this that's when they got more violent. >> there are women in there and old people. >> were there women and old people in there. >> you can see a video a woman walking out as they are trampling on the tent. you can see her walking out from this. there were women and old people in there before hand as they started tearing it down. >> he will have more of the first hand account of what happened 6:45 later today. 18 minutes after the hour now. they have been raised for breaking the law. here's the yes, why is the lapd refuse to go hand them over to the feds for deportation? but it's a bird a plane and it is not super man. that is astroid 3 miles long about to pass. very dangerously close to the

it can transform people's grief. >> i am the owner of three dogs but sometimes people personalize the relationship with dogs a little too much, don't you think? >> i think some people use dogs to substitute for human relationships when they can have both. >> my >> i don't think either party is nuts. right now the gender identity issues are so complex they are best left for the professionals. my advice would be find the qualities you admire in your friend focus on those and leave her gender identity to her and her doctors. >> >> what do you think about this? move in next to your
ex-boyfriend. crazy because you think you are doing it baulz it's a nice place. you are doing it because you can't let go. you want to be closer to the guy. you have a vixen false belief about why you are doing this. that's called a delusion. >> find more place. doctor thank you so much. send in your e-mails, your questions. he will tell you whether you are normal or not. it is 24 minutes after the hour. coming up next on "the rundown" it was sewed to be a community center. one year later it was all a mask kau raid. we went downtown to find out what was really going on with the ground zero mosque. the navy fighting a different war. the war on christmas. the navy swore to cancel the live nativity. we will tell you about that.

bargaining at all. this is not about other basics e about organizing at all. this is about the relationship between unions and workers. >> democrats fear this could sway other big union states to follow suit. the incoming house minority leader in michigan slammed the governor. >> now it is official ladies and gentlemen the governor of michigan is one greedy nerd and he is one week geek. we are not going to take it ian more. he wasn't satisfied with out sourcing thousands of jobs while on the board of gateway computer, he wants to turn michigan into the same low wage environment we see in china. >> this may not be the final word. we could see legal challenges. but right to work advocates chalked up probably their most significant victory by adding michigan to their list. back to you guys. thank you, doug. these developments out of michigan the big talker this

steps from ground zero and inside of that building dozens of 9-11 victims were found there. you may remember this, back in 2010 that became the site of a major battle and pitted backers of the mosque against families of the 9-11 victims. >> nationwide opposition to the mosque location close to the world trade center site smashinged by this guy. he was the public face of the mosque the same man who blamed u.s. policies for the attack on 9-11. then went further. >> united states has more muslim blood on its hands. >> mosque organizers planned to build an elaborate $100 million mega mosque. after opposition they altered their pitch. >> there will be cooking classes, there will be schools,
